Homemade Holiday Sangria

Homemade Holiday Sangria

Eat, drink, and be merry! One of my favorite things to do during the holidays—and I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way—is be festive! Garland spiraling up your banister, a handmade wreath on the door, Christmas trees in every room, twinkling lights, the list goes on.

This year I wanted to try my hand at putting together a holiday drink for one of my family Christmases. This recipe is really pretty simple—I think it took me a total of 45 minutes to craft from start to finish. If you’re also juggling multiple other things in the kitchen, this might be a little unneeded stress, but if you’re in charge of just the drinks, this is totally doable.

What you’ll need:
2 bottles Pinot Grigio
1 cup apple juice
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups ginger ale
2 granny smith apples
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 anjou pear
fresh rosemary
cinnamon sticks

First, combine 1 cup Pinot Grigio, apple juice, and sugar on the stove top and bring to a boil.

Then add the cranberries and let it boil for a minute or two.

Strain and separate the cranberries and liquid, then allow both to cool.

While that's cooling, cut the apples and pear.

Then combine it all: Pinot Grigio, ginger ale, apples, pear, cranberries, and cranberry liquid.

Finish the drinks with fresh rosemary and cinnamon!
